Suzuki Carry FAQ

Remote working inside the van.

I get loads of questions about my Suzuki Carry conversion, so I set up this post to keep all the my van info in one place. (You’re welcome 😉)

That being said, it’s cool getting emails from other people with plans for their own Suzuki Carry. So if you have any questions the best way to contact me would be via DM on my Keiko instagram account or email.
